OH. MY. GOD.
OH! MY! GOD!
This is definitely the FIRST time I have seen and went for a book signing event in Singapore!
It is a really rare opportunity for Singaporean readers to see their favourite authors here, so I would like to thank Miss Sarah J. Maas for coming here and also, Penguin Books SG and Popular bookstores for bringing the Throne of Glass author here!
It was thanks to Adelena from A Page of Heaven, that I know about the Throne of Glass series and I confess, I have only just started the first book in the series.
Let me just say that 5 chapters into the first book, I am already HOOKED!
Now, onto the book signing event that took place at Popular bookstore in Jurong Point Shopping Mall, Singapore!
Here’s a look at the signing event before the arrival of our beloved author!
SARAH J. MAAS ARRIVES!
March 10, 2016
There was a short interview from the bloggers at A Page of Heaven, followed by Q&A from the fans! One of the most memorable question from one of the fans was: if Caelena were to use Tinder, which celebrities would she follow?
Sarah: Caelena would probably be boy-crazy. Henry Cavill, Scott Eastwood and the actor who played Bellamy in The 100!
After that, there was an special event where Miss Sarah will pick a piece of paper from a bag of questions and answer them!
This is one of my favourite part, because who else better than the author knows the personalities of her own characters?
(Disclaimer: The writing below is based on what I can remember from the event itself. It is not the exact words that Miss Sarah J. Maas, the interviewers and the fans said!)
Question: iPhone 7 just launched! Who will be the first to get it?
Answer: DORIAN! He gets all the fine stuff!
Question: If Caelena, Chaol, Dorian and Rowan were to go in an amusement park, what would they do?
Answer: Caelena would probably go on all the rides at at least 3 times or until she pukes and Rowan would be there to pet her back and say, “I told you so”. Dorian would probably go on all the rides and eat all the candy and Chaol would be his wingman. Then on the way back, Caelena and Chaol would probably be sick in the backseats while Rowan would be driving, and Dorian would be saying, “Lets do it again!”
There are more than just those questions and really, Miss Sarah is one the most fun and humourous person I have ever met!
Here’s Miss Sarah hard at work, signing for all her fans!
I would just like to point out that I was a complete mess in front of her, and I was probably mumbling gibberish while my heart was beating really fast! Yes, as some of you may have guess…
I AM REALLY EXCITED TO MEET HER!
Miss Sarah is really friendly and she makes small talk with her readers while signing the books!
For those of you who did not get a chance to see her at Jurong Point, there is another signing at Kinokuniya Bookstore, Singapore on March 11, 2016 at 19:00!
